Allow yourself

What will you allow yourself to achieve today? What fears will you allow yourself to transcend? What actions will you allow yourself to take? What new things will you allow yourself to learn? What positive, empowering thoughts will you allow yourself to live by?

It may seem comforting to blame your limitations on situations beyond your control, and yet the truth is that those external limitations are insignificant compared to the limitations you place on yourself. Yes, those external limitations are very real and very powerful. But you have the power to overcome each and every one of them when you allow yourself to do so.

You are designed and destined to do great things, if you’ll only allow yourself to live out that destiny. Today can be filled with value if you’ll allow yourself to see that value and to live it.

Why would you want it any other way? The opportunities are there. Allow yourself to seize them. The experiences are there. Allow yourself to live them. The joy of living is yours. Allow yourself to be filled with it.

Today is a precious treasure, and it is yours. Allow yourself the joy and fulfillment of living every moment.

— Ralph Marston
